2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Monkeypiss. No idea how it ended up in my fridge. Pours dark brown with thin white head. Scent is chemicals and grain. Scent is slightly sweet. Barely there roasted flavor fades into mild sweetness and weird aftertaste. Overcarbonated to hide the fact it is garbage. Bottle - Source Unknown

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Recently added to the Ontario-Quebec market (maybe rest of Canada too). Pours a dark brown colour with a bubbly beige head, decent retention and lots of soapy lacing. Roasted malt aromas with some rusty hops that make it on top with time. This is the same for the taste where the rusty hops become stronger with time. Watery toasted malts with slight burnt bread. Notes of chocolate appears in the nose eventually. Made thin for those who do not like the thicker Guinness stout. An average macro schwarzbier.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 oz bottle. L3028GD001. (Midtown Wine) Nashville, TN.
Black colour with a red hue and a small tan head.
Sweet malt, toasted bread and brown sugar in the aroma.
Sweet malt and some darker tones in the flavour.
Not very good.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Taste is fairly tame, especially when compared to a standard Guinness. Perhaps it is unfair to compare the two. Very average lager.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
One day, Gemma Aterton will look back at her career and cringe at the idea that she did "Hansel & Gretel". And so will Guinness with this beer. It tastes like a glass of water that has been added with leftover black beer and cigarette butts.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Poured an opaque black color with a brown, frothy head. Smells of roasted malt and coffee grounds. Sweet, malty flavor initially with bitter roasted finish. Light, watery body, somewhat overcarbonated.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Guinness flavour without the gorgeous creamy palate and deep black look topped with solid froth. Its fine for a lager, like the regular draught, just lighter in body.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Just what the beer world needs: another banal lager. Tried first at toronto beer fest where the guy working the booth said "it wasnít until they made this that i started liking Guinness products" which probably isnít the best sign. Happy says its not bad; I say why bother. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cola colored medium liquid. Frothy tan head dissipates quickly to a thin lacing. Smells of aluminum. The palate is one of fizzy carbonation, followed by the taste of some malty sweetness. A slight sourness rounds out the taste. Finishes with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Iíd buy regular Guinness Stout 10 times out of 10 when considering the brand.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a small sized head. Blah ... muted roast and chocolate. Maybe I did it wrong - I see in the description to enjoy ice cold straight from the bottle ....
